A/N: I did this for a friend of mine, for her birthday. And she is a part of this story. I have to tell you that, unfortunatelly, I do not own Yu-Gi-Oh!

"Seto Kaiba, get your ass over here this instant!" was heard all over the mansion.

"Oh, crap! I'm doomed!" was the only reply of one stoic KaibaCorp CEO, also known as Seto Kaiba.

He elegantly rose from his chair in front of the computer and exited his office. Seto passed several doors and, stopping at one, seemingly at random, entered, without knocking. He had entered one of the many state-of-the-art laboratories in his house and he made his way towards the back of it.

"I'm here, Melinda! What's the rush? And will you please stop screaming so loud through the intercom!"

A young woman of 21 appeared from behind a desk. She was only a little shorter then Seto, had black hair, tied in a ponytail and vibrant, green eyes. She was wearing a lab coat over a pair of faded jeans and a button shirt.

"What took you? Here I am, working myself to exhaustion to help you beat that infernal deck of Yugi's and you don't even acknowledge …"

"Melinda, I came as fast as I could!" came the calm response of Seto Kaiba. "Now, what's the rush? Found anything?"

"As a matter of fact, I did. Do you remember Bakura's favorite card?"

"Diabound? It's not strong…"

"Not that one! Change of heart!"

"Oh, yes! So? What about it?"

"Do you remember what it does?"

"Vaguely. Does it have something to do with controlling the monster on the other field?"

"Only one monster and for only one turn. But, if can make Yugi fuse his God cards and then you use Change of heart, you have an unstoppable monster on your side."

"Good strategy! Only problem is, how do I get the Change of heart?" one could clearly see that Seto Kaiba was impressed.

"Easy! Once bakura finds out that you want to beat Yugi, I'm sure he will be more than happy to lend you the Change of heart/"

"Melinda, you are a genius! I knew I was right to hire you!"

The girl smirked and, coming closer to her employer, said:

"Do I get a reward for this?"

"Reward? Well, a raise in salary will certainly be coming your way!" answered Set, with a smirk of his own.

"I didn't mean that kind of … mmphhhhhhhhh…."

She was silenced in the middle of her phrase as a pair of lips sealed themselves over hers. After a few breathless minutes, Seto pulled away.

"Is this a better reward, honey?" his smile to his wife was now genuine.

"Why don't we take this somewhere else, shall we Seto?!" was the breathless reply.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
